Amazing Grace

1
Amazing grace! how sweet the sound,
  That saved a wretch; like me!
I once was lost, but now am found,
  Was blind, but now I see.
2
’Twas grace that taught my heart to fear,
  And grace my fears relieved;
How precious did that grace appear
  The hour I first believed!
3
The Lord hath promised good to me,
  His word my hope secures;
He will my shield and portion be
  As long as life endures.
4
When we’ve been there ten thousand years,
  Bright shining as the sun,
We’ve no less days to sing God’s praise
  Than when we first begun.

It is my late husband's birthday today; and I just had to sing this now; as he loved this so much. I know he cannot hear me; but he so loved to hear me singing this; having read the story of John Newton; and what he was; and what he became after he got to know God; it really is amazing grace; that saved a wretch like me: glory to God! and to Him be all praise: God bless everyone at hymnal.net. and thank you for hours of pleasure.

I love this hymn; so much it tells how this amazing grace has helped me through so much sorrow and pain. Also stubborness and willfulness. This wonderfull grace of God that is new every morning: I marvel at God's patience with me: and have heart so grateful for this love: please pray for me that I can also show this love; patience and grace and forgiveness to others: God bless to everyone : festive greetings to all.

To The Family of Poet John Newton, he must be in double heaven to write such a heartfelt song from the entire vessel of the human body. GOD must have given him the right hand of fellowship when he entered the golden gates of the heavenly pearls.Mr. Newton must have had two hearts after GOD gave him a new one.

Such a peace when hearing this song. A loved one of ours entered into Heavens gates with this song in her heart.

I sang this to my dying father in hospice today. He is a man who will soon sit at the right hand of our Lord ✌️

We are familiar with the hymn "Amazing Grace." Although this is a good hymn, it does not speak of the Triune God as our portion for our enjoyment. When this hymn was written, the experiential knowledge of God among the Lord's people had not come to this point. Even as recent as fifty years ago, Christians did not have the understanding of grace as the Triune God experienced and enjoyed by us. But standing on the shoulders of those who have gone before us, we have come to know that grace is far more than merely unmerited favor. Grace is the Triune God—the Father, the Son, and the Spirit—processed for our experience and enjoyment.
